All CSCS Cards are non refundable once payment has been submitted on our booking form. 

 

Processing Periods and Confirmations

Once payment has been accepted, you will receive an e-mail to inform you that your booking is being processed by our administrative team.  We aim to process single bookings within 24-working hours and group bookings within 72-working hours.  You will then receive a second e-mail (confirmation), which will provide you with the following information regarding your Health, Safety and Environment Test:

  • Booking reference number
  • Test location, date and time
  • Type of test and duration
  • An overview of our reschedule policy
  • An overview of our cancelation policy
  • Identification Requirements
  • General directions to the test centre
  • Conduct

You accept that there is limited availability at test centres around the UK and a candidate may not receive the test date and time they want, due to unavailability.  Therefore, you are encouraged to submit additional available dates, times, or periods of the day when you are available, onto our booking form, to help us board you onto a test that you can likely attend.  We cannot guarantee that we can meet your specifications exactly but will attempt to board you onto the most suitable test for you, based on the information that you provide to us.  Where there is unavailability at either of your chosen test centres, or it exceeds 14-days from your requested test date, we will contact you to determine how you would like to proceeed, before we process your booking.

Please be aware, that the receipt of Confirmation of your test date, time and location, is not indicative of the exact date and time the test was booked and paid for by us.  You have the right to object to further processing, however, if our administrative team have already processed the request to book your test and you have not yet received your confirmation, you will incur the administrative charge stipulated for processing as long as the request was made outside of our 4-day cancellation policy (see below).

It is very important that you read the Confirmation that is e-mailed to you.  We do not accept responsibility for those individuals that fail to read their confirmations or query them with us to discuss potential reschedules or cancellations prior to attending their test.  You accept that the preferred date and time you requested initially, may not match exactly what you receive on your confirmation.  We do endeavour to get the closest available date and time to your initial preference, whilst also considering your additional availability (if you choose to submit this).

If you have not received a confirmation, you are encouraged to check your spam/junk folder first and then contact us at info@ukconstructiontrainingservices.org to discuss your concerns or ask for us to re-send it.  We do not accept responsibility for enquiries of this nature being made after the date of the test has passed.  We also do not accept responsibility for claims that confirmations have not been received where we are able to provide you evidence of exactly when the confirmation was sent.

 

Booking Restrictions

You accept that bookings cannot be rescheduled within 4-working days of the day you are due to sit your test, nor can they be cancelled.  You accept this, understanding that any cancellations requested within this timeframe are done so, knowing that you risk the total test fee of £43.00.

 

Rescheduling, Cancelling and Administration Fees

You can contact us at info@ukconstructiontrainingservices.org to reschedule or cancel your test, as long you make contact more than 4-working days before the date you are due to sit your test, as per the booking restrictions described above.  Any enquiries made to reschedule less than 4-working days cannot be processed. 

All rescheduling and cancellation queries should be forwarded along with the following information:

  • First Name,
  • Surname and
  • booking number.

 

Group Bookings

Group bookings are processed using the same protocol we use to process individual bookings.  Therefore, you accept that they are applicable to the same restrictions, as above.  And, because they are individual, any request to cancel or reschedule within the timeframe described above, will therefore be subject to the same cancellation fee and reschedule policy for each candidate within the group.

 

Complaints

We are dedicated to providing you with a high level of service at all times, but if you are not satisfied, please contact our staff.  In the event that you remain dissatisfied and wish to make a complaint, you should contact: info@ukconstructiontrainingservices.org to make contact with our administrative operators.  Where they are unable to settle your dispute, your query will be passed to management level for final settlement.  All complaints should be forwarded along with the following information:
